About the Artists:
New York City reggae collective, Easy Star All-Stars, are set to hit the stage at Vancouver’s Venue Nightclub on July 23rd. Fans of reggae, dub, classic and indie rock will crowd under one roof for an epic reggae re-imagining of the work of Michael Jackson, Radiohead, The Beatles and Pink Floyd.
With a stage packed full of musical talent, including a superb rhythm section, the Easy Star All-Stars play iconic songs with fun dub beats and reggae stylings. Their best-selling tribute albums Dub Side of the Moon (2003), Radiodread (2006), Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band (2009), Dubber Side of the Moon (2010), and Easy Star’s Thrillah (2012) prove again and again as fan-favourites, while their original albums such as First Light (2011) and Until That Day (2008) evidence their vocal versatility and instrumental prowess.
Since their live debut in 2003, the Easy Star All-Stars have developed a solid reputation as one of the most exciting live performers in the reggae scene. Now, they’ve grown into an international act with tours in over 30 countries and 6 continents, and a long list of major festivals they’ve played, including an unprecedented three-day, three-stage stand at Glastonbury which earned them a UK Festy Award Nomination. With this veteran stage presence, the Easy Star All-Stars put on more than just a show—it’s an experience that will please any discerning music lover.
Opening for the headliner is local act, Mostly Marley who have been playing classical reggae by various artists including the legendary Bob Marley since 2003. Vancouver fans will remember the good groove they gave audiences at performances all over British Columbia.
